                Can they plan for strike ?? 

I love to tell some of the situations that happened to me during my career in my work with people with disabilities, the fact that some of us , in many cases may not have sufficient capacity to choose  may find  himself  in situations not planned for  or be ready for, and this is exactly  what happened with me more than once.
One of the  exotic positions that happened to me, when I started my new job in one of the large organisations in the country  , which is a  sheltered  workshop a factory  of wooden and metal furniture and equipped with all the  potential crisis for the work of people with disability, especially the means of safety devices .  The origins of work for me  to do is to identify the people who I will work with them, and  I asked for  meeting with them  and prepared the room for that  I came  in the hall  on time  I was so surprised I did not find anybody 

 waiting for me and the room was completely empty , I was really surprised  and when requested clarification  I learned  that  they were have decided to strike against  me  and they do not want to see me here , and  when I  tried to  understand  , they refused even  to negotiate with me,  through my experience I learned that there are leaders, leading this rebellion, I invited two of them  to  my office  spoke with them I knew that   the strikers do not want me in the organization and I have to leave immediately, I asked them to give  me  some time to  make my decision. I know through my experience too , that behind this rebellion some of  instigators  of the trainers and supervisors    , In fact, I did not worry  about that  , what I care about  is the situation  itself  , I  was very pleased    that they have come to this advanced stage of freedom of expression.  that was really  what struck  me .


  1. I have always been wary of unions and their endless demands ... reminds me too much of communism and radicalism, which I experienced in Europe ++ ... just starting to understand that they do have their place in the work world ...
